  Annotation: This paper presents an overview and description, based on site visits of a U.S. Department of Justice funded crime prevention program in Seattle, WA, the Comprehensive Communities Program (CCP).
Abstract: Seattle’s Comprehensive Communities Program (CCP) was one of 16 sites invited by and funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to combat crime. The Seattle Police Department coordinated the development of the overall program strategy, as well as engaging other organizations to implement pieces of the CCP. Seattle’s plan for community policing had three components: a mission, vision, and core values statement and strategic plan; an operational plan; and a training plan. The foundation of Seattle’s CCP would be problem-oriented policing. When assessing the successes of the Seattle CCP, leaders cited the police training curriculum and the selection of an action-oriented Community Policing Action Council. CCP became a focal point of cooperation between the police and the community. CCP was used as seed money to increase the capacity of community/social service organizations and the police department to partner in crime prevention activities. This paper, supported by the U.S. Department of Justice, National Institute of Justice, is a case study of Seattle’s CCP program and written as a result of site visits made to various CCP programs and interviews with CCP participants between September 1995 and December 1996. Data are incorporated from BOTEC’s CCP Coalition Survey and Community Policing Survey and information contained in several Federal and local documents and reports. Appendix A-B
